Apopka and Wekiva clash tonight in postseason rematch

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Photo from ABC Action Photos. Friday Night MatchupCan Blue Darter offense break through Mustang defense? One game was one-sided, the other back and forth. One game was a defensive struggle, the other an offensive display. But what both games had in common was one thing – wins for both Apopka and Wekiva in the first round of the postseason playoffs.The Apopka Blue Darters (8-3) held off the Ocoee Lions (8-3) 35-28, while the Wekiva Mustangs (10-1) shutout the West Orange Warriors (7-4) 16-0 in the first round of the FHSAA 8-A state playoffs.The wins for both teams means the crosstown rivals will face each other again this Friday in the second round (Region 8A-1 semifinals). The winner goes to the regional finals and would be three wins away from a state championship, while the loser… well you know how that goes by now.In the regular season, Wekiva defeated Apopka 35-0.Kickoff for the Apopka-Wekiva rematch is scheduled for 7:30 at the Baptiste Orthodontics Stadium on the campus of Wekiva High School.Apopka 35, Oviedo 28Apopka junior Akeem Brown scored four times, and freshman cornerback Nikai Martinez intercepted a pass in the end zone with less than a minute remaining to lift the Blue Darters over the Oviedo Lions 35-28 last Friday night.It was a seesaw game that saw five lead changes and four game-tying touchdowns. At the end of the half Apopka and Oviedo were tied (21-21), and after three quarters they remained tied (28-28). But in the fourth quarter, the Blue Darter defense held strong, shutting out the Lions which made Brown’s 17-yard touchdown run with 5:12 left in the game the difference.Blue Darter sophomore running back Eric Wright added 208 yards rushing and an electrifying 80-yard first quarter touchdown run that gave Apopka a 14-7 lead.It was the second straight season Apopka has won an opening-round playoff game on the road.Wekiva 16, West Orange 0It was September 28th, the opening game of the 8A-4 Regional schedule for Wekiva, and they were cruising. Heading into the fourth quarter, the undefeated Mustangs led the West Orange Warriors 29-14. It looked like a fifth straight win for Wekiva, but then a funny thing happened on the way to the final horn.The Warriors scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns and 16-unanswered points and shocked Wekiva 30-29, throwing District 8A-4 into disarray, and ending the hopes of an undefeated season for the Mustangs.It was a significant setback for Wekiva, but since that game, the Mustangs have gone on a defensive rampage that has more than made up for that single quarter lapse. In the last five games of the regular season, Wekiva’s defense hasn’t allowed a point. The only score against them came on special teams when the Evans Trojans blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone of an already decided game (39-6).And in the playoffs, the Mustangs continued their defensive mastery.Wekiva, the #1 ranked team in Region 8A-1, shutout the West Orange Warriors 16-0 last Friday to avenge their regular season loss. The Mustangs outgained West Orange by a 393-63 margin and posted their sixth straight defensive-shutout against a Warrior offense averaging 44 points per game.Wekiva junior quarterback Larry Preston scored on a 9-yard touchdown run, threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Renardo Green, and the Mustangs took a 13-0 lead into halftime. Junior Kicker Bryan Wilson added a 24-yard field goal in the third quarter to complete the scoring.Junior running back Supreme Richardson also ran for 171 yards, while junior wide receiver Jalen Williams caught eight passes for 104 yards.On defense, senior defensive lineman Norell Pollard had two sacks in the first half and Green intercepted a West Orange pass in the second half.

first_imgI had a very similar clip to this which broke and had looked everywhere to find one similar. Service was excellent, but the hairclip, although very pretty, is smaller than the impression given in the picture. I have very thick hair – and lots of it – so need to have a wide jawed clip to hold it up. So although it just about holds up my hair, i have to try a few times to get it right. This is the fourth one i have purchased. Three out of four have had excellent grip. This is important as i have a lot of hair. Even the one with least grip was better than any other hair clasp i have ever purchased beautifully packaged. Lovely clip i bought to use on holiday great quality and very sparklydelivered on time and after sales service very good. This hair accessory is fantastic for long thick hair. Beautiful hair accesory and I would buy againYes it is ok but much smaller than it looks Well designed, well made, great serviceQueenMee Large Hair Claw Crystal Hair Clip Crystal Hair Claw Wedding Hair Clip Black Crystal Hair Clip Rhinestone Hair Claw Rhinestone Hair Clip Diamante Hair Clip Diamante Hair Claw Clip Hair Claw Clamp Hair Jaw Hair Clamp GeometricStunning statement piece which is easy to styleLuxury hair clip with beautifully sparkling crystals, hand finished in the UKSits comfortably on the head and stays in place wellGenerously proportioned claw which firmly holds hairEvery piece is carefully wrapped in an organza gift pouch They really finish an outfit and can make even casual dress a little more special. I was given one for christmas and have had so many wonderful comments when i wear it. This is a lovely hair grip, gently curved to follow the contour of your head, and tastefully decorated with sparkly rhinestones, both on the sides and a nice touch – on the grip as well.

Lovely presentation and clip – i will be ordering another – thank you for the note nice touch. Beautiful hairclip, nice quality, arrived promptly, friendly service. Arrived very quick,realy nice clip looks expensive. Very good at such a good price. Ordered 2 hair clips for upcoming holiday. Quick delivery, products look excellent, complete with their own little pink bag, very prettywould make lovely gifts. Super sparkly and amazing grip. I have very thick, curly hair and this clip holds everything in place securely- i’m yet to find one with the same style and durability on the highstreet. It arrived promptly after ordering and beautifully packaged in tissue paper and an organza bag- lovely touches for something so reasonably priced. Were please with the goods but i would have like a fabric pouch to store the goods us i have had with previous hair accessories before. Beautiful hair accesory and i would buy again. If you have very thick hair you may not find it strong enough as mine is fine but i have a lot but just about grabs it all if i want to put my pony tail up. Strong, holds the hair well and looks amazing. I then decided to go on the queenme site and order more. The hair slips and claws are simply stunning. Good quality product, holds my hair firmly and presents itself very nicely. I love my queen mee clip, it is good quality and looked stylish for a night out, i got some nice compliments about it, very pleased. Yes it is ok but much smaller than it looks in the picture ,its not for someone that has a lot of hair to put up but it is ok for me the grip itself is firm and if you want it quick order from this company i it came the day after i put my order it. I recommend for anyone who like beautiful stuff:). Would have liked it to be a bit bigger, but it is lovely. This is a wonderful hair claw that sits like a desire in your hair.Appears beautiful in hair, hundreds of people comment when i have worn the clip. Incredibly sturdy hair claw, top quality for income. I was looking for a hair clip that works on thick hair and omg i found it, this clip works fab on really thick hair, i will tell everyone about it.
